Registraricidal 2012

Yes, mail to metagrrrl.com is down today thanks to a screw-up at my domain registrar. You can still reach me through my Gmail or DinahSanders.com addresses. In theory, all will be back to normal by tomorrow.

Grrr.

Oo! New glasses? Haircut? Redesign! 2012

It's not a radical change, but my online self is now looking more put together thanks to the skilful minstrations of Mr. Lance Arthur.

Do let me know if you find anything amiss, but, frankly, after the work he did both for appearance and cleanliness of the underlying code, you're more likely to find something working that used to be broken (or at least kinda janky).

The biggest changes took place on Discardia.com, which is now not only prettier, but more functional and a far better reflection of Discardian principles.

Hiring someone who actually knows what they're doing is worth every penny.

Living Better 2012

If you cook & freeze some pieces of bacon, when you get home after a party at 11:45pm you'll be able to have 1 piece of bacon in 10 seconds.

All Out 2012

Glad to hear Ukraine's anti-gay Law 8711 has been shelved—but it may be back in Sept. Keep the pressure on. #equality

Not my strong suit 2012

Trying to quell the pre-shopping horrors. Nexus of fear: dressy/formal, hot weather, & meeting strangers in non-professional role.

Trauma held at bay by super shopper Joe. Dress, skirt, 2 shrugs acquired. Now food before shoes & shells & his suit. #shopping

Hit the shopping wall, but after easily twice the usual number of try-ons. Shoes acquired & a probably workable top. Phew.

Gentle, poppy versions of songs to which goths used to dance darkly play in Jos. A. Bank as Joe buys a suit. #death #bleakness #sale!

The big announcement 2012

OH: "We can just have physicists on in the background…"

Tuesday does Saturday right: Our big screen shows physicists filing in slowly to take seats for the big Higgs-Boson announcement #nerds #yes

OMG. Physicists are cute. #higgsboson

Default for male physicists seems to be blue shirts, for females red. Does this mean female physicists are moving faster away from now?

Physicists. Sooooo cute and funny. #higgsboson #nerdsRgreat

Quickly becoming incomprehensible to me, but STILL CUTE! #higgsboson

Loving the messy, non-definitiveness of science. Slow growth of understanding & growth of subsequent questions. Thank you, scientists!

Not paying forward 2012

RT @BarackObama: FACT: In 2010 and 2011, Romney paid less than 15% in taxes on $42.5 million in income—much less than what many middle-class families pay.

Can't help but think of this:

Ch-ch-changes 2012

As you can see, exciting changes are taking place around here.

It took me quite a long while, but I have—over a decade after it ceased being my day job—finally embraced the fact that since I'm not a web designer anymore, that means I can hire someone else to do it for me. Because the someone I have hired is also one of my most trusted friends, this revitalization of my sites will take place with the same devil may care attitude as changes I made myself in the past. You may see all sorts of crazy, halfway-to-their-final-state stages of the process. Pardon, as they say, our dust.

What a glorious beatdown in that last document. A 21 page well-earned pummeling.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
